Question about HP Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
You have a couple of options here:
Remove the battery and the AC adaptor, press the power buttin in and hold for 30 seconds, release, reconnect the battery and AC power adaptor and try again. If this does not work, check the output voltage on the jack that goes into the laptop from the adaptor with a multimeter (If you are not technically minded, ask someone to do this for you). Set the DV volt scale of the meter to 20 volts and connect one probe to the inside of the jack and one to the outside, if you do not get a reading, the AC adaptor has failed. If you do, you can eliminate this as a problem and assume that the power is getting to the laptop.
Check the tightness of the jack connection to the laptop, if it feels "sloppy" the port is on its way out and will need replacing before arcing damages the charger board.
I do feel however, that.. and I'm going to stick my neck out and say this is a DV or G series laptop, that the motherboard is damaged. Usually the display goes first then the rest of the laptop. This is due to a very bad cooling system on the laptop and complicated by a build up of dust and fluff in the cooling components all of which kill the chip.
If this is the case, then any repair will probebly be expensive

When this happened was your laptop hot to the touch on the underside? it's possible it may have overheated and ate itself, pull the battery off for about 60 seconds, and reinstall. then try again.
